The people who orbit around Renn Ivins, an actor of Harrison Ford-like stature - his girlfriends, his children, his ex-wives, those on the periphery - long to experience the glow of his fame. Anna and Will are Renn's grown children, struggling to be authentic versions of themselves in a world where they are seen as less important extensions of their father. They are both drawn to and repelled by the man who overshadows every part of them.
Most of us can imagine the perks of celebrity, but Little Known Facts offers a clear-eyed story of its effects - the fallout of fame and fortune on family members and others who can neither fully embrace nor ignore the superstar in their midst. With Little Known Facts, Christine Sneed emerges as one of the most insightful chroniclers of our celebrity-obsessed age, telling a story of influence and affluence, of forging identity and happiness and a moral compass; the question being, if we could have anything on Earth, would we choose correctly?

It took up time, while mildly entertainng during the time I was busy working
I identified mostly with the first wife.......Renn seemed like a fairly nice person, but a bit shallow. The reviews said he compared to Harrison Ford....however George Clooneys face was the one that I saw..............
If this narrator has aspirations of being an actor.....he needs to look for another job. The narration was extremely annoying.....took away from the story. the narrator doesn't read the story, he tries to act the parts and is very bad at it.
Audible has some very good narrators, however so far I have come across two that were so bad that I couldn't finish the book with the narration running.
Maybe... the story is a bit out of my interest but some of the development of said characters I did find interesting
Really, really nice voice that makes listening to such a tale bearable. I would listen to more of his work.
The relationship between the son and daughter (and their shared love) was upsetting.
